    I say Griffin because he doesn't look like he will shy away from banging around the basket

    yeah but he is very raw offensively. He is not a good shooter and is post game is alright.

    I believe Griffin will have a better rookie season due to getting more minutes. Beasley was never really given the playing time that you'd expect the second overall pick to get. Griffin is expected to start but you never really know how the Clips manage him. Their will be more pressure on Griffin to perform.

    In terms of talent, ability etc. Beasley has him on talent, his offensive skillset is better. He's a calm and collective player. Needs to work on his defense, it's a bit inconsistent. He has stretches where he'll put the effort in and then slack off. Also, a bit undersized. Griffin is a better rebounder than Beasley due to being bigger and more aggresive. It's like the dude's hungry for those rebounds. Passing is probably the same. Griffin's a bit better at passing outta the double. I'd take Griffin's work ethic, determination, aggresion over Beasley's though. I'm yet to see that sort of passion from Beasley. He has all the tools but I'd like to see him WANT it more. I haven't seen much of either player so I might be a bit off on my analysis.

    man, I am still a really big Beasley fan. I think he got sparse playing time in Miami, and still looked good. I think Beasely at this point, because I have seen he will be, at the very least, a Glenn Robinson. 22 ppg, 8 rpg. Needs to work on the defensive end.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I think Griffin's size and athleticism, and the fact that he a lot more level headed give him the nod. He doesn't have the offensive skills Beasley has, but he has all the intangibles and I think I much more competitive mind frame.

    Youd be surprised how meaningless skills can be if your not an aggressive player.

    Thornton has all the skills one would need to be an All-Star, he only lacks the brain to know how to attack the rim effectively. Im hoping Griffin is one of those players who what he does know how to do, he can do it. Like Maggette when he was with us, all he did was slash and get free throws but he was a very good offensive player.

    Anyone saying minutes will make any player the better player should stop making excuses, minutes are never the qualifier, performance in those minutes is all that matters.

    Beasley dominated the NCAA - and Griffin - when they were both freshman in a league that eventually posted the deepest draft class in years.

    Griffin dominated a weak NCAA where most of his competition for best player declared the year before.

    Griffin will be a very good player, but barring something unexpected he won't be as good as Beasley in the short or long term.

    i wonder who GM's if given the option would take #1 in the draft Beasley or Griffin. they both play the same position but play totally different games.

    i think they would take Beasley because he is more talented.

    I'll go with beasley. Griffin will be a better rebounder, have more highlights because of his athletisicm, and has more fire but beasley has better fudamentals on offense. I think once beasley puts it together he'll be a dominate offensive. Both he and griffin have to get better of defense though. Should be fun seeing them go head to head

    Plus griffin is going to the clippers and I'm probably a little biased
    Miami Heat:......Fill the roster out with some decent signings

    New Orleans Saints: 9-3
    First in NFC South. 3rd seed

    Another reason I take Griffin is that he is even tempered which can help for any rookie.
